donauPONG

Preliminary project in the context of Linz09

A point moves back and forth. Two players control a vertical line which they move up and down with a knob. If the ball misses the racket the opponent receives one point. Sounds simple and is good – PONG, the first successful and popular video game, the hyped pioneer of the video and computer game era.

donauPONG wants to bring this classic to Linz in 2009 but not in form of a small video game or a mid-sized gaming console but rather as the biggest video game of the world. Where? At the danube river. When? Every day when night falls. Who? Everyone who wants.

Concept: Thomas Philipp
Technical realization: Dieter Mackinger, Christian Leisch, Ingo Randolf
